--------->LOGO recut & repasted:
Subject: New Potato Caboose
For the vocals, the honor goes to 10/12/68. Nothing beats the studio vocals but the ones on this particular show are very nice. Pig's absent and it's all Jerry in there.
I believe the Valentine's Day '68 show has the best buildup to a guitar solo. Phil isn't soloing yet but the stuff he's playing is sending him on his way to Bass God Grad School.
The best ending, would originally have been the one from Two From The Vault but after gaining a further appreciation of electric bass and hearing what Phil plays behind Jerry on this version I'd have to go with the Fillmore West 3/1/69 version.
As for the best guitar solo, it's this one. No question about it. In terms of guitar solos on New Potato Caboose, Jerry never sounded as good as this in later versions.
I'm not really a fan of the show besides New Potato. So, I'll give it 4.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" March 29, 1969, at the Carousel Ballroom, San Francisco, CA, U.S.A.
41 years ago, the GRATEFUL DEAD played the Carousel Ballroom.
Sounds like a mono soundboard that's been digitally enhanced. It sounds fantastic for an audience tape from 1968...it baffles my mind to think it is an audience tape.
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
thanks for the LOVE from 1968.
Subject: Best '68 audience recording
A tremendous performance as well. Though I think the band has lost a bit of momentum after breaking through during the amazing Quick/Dead tour. This is still very special and certainly as good or better than the balance of what circulates from March.
This show blazes from the opening notes of Morning Dew through the tragically cut Born Cross Eyed. The high-point is, of course, the incredible nine minute New Potato Caboose, which just might be the best ever performed.
Clearly the best Aud of March, this gem rivals even 3/16 and 3/30 (sbds), not only sonically, but the playing is first-rate as well. Only 3/17 in Download Series quality is superior.
What a shame we will never hear what just might be the best Born Cross Eyed ever played...
Subject: Inferior to other shows of the period
Morning Dew: 5 stars. Excellent
Lovelight: 2 stars Sloppy and repetitive, doesn’t go anywhere.
Cryptical> Other One3 stars. Not a log of energy. Not as good as the January, February or ’67 versions.
Cryptical reprise: 3.5-to-4 stars. Things pick up here
New Potato: 4 stars. Not bad. The jam after the vocals starts off lackluster, but improves. Again, listen to the ’67 and 2/68 versions.
A rare Born Cross-Eyed – The only played it one more time after this, on the following night. Too bad it’s only a fragment.
The audio quality is fine, but the audio of the 3/26 show (also an audience recording) is better, less echo.
Subject: really good audience recording
